Layouts in the November 2019 Issue

Southern Pacific in Oregon in HO Scale

The Southern Pacific’s route traveled through much of the state of Oregon. Stan Schmidt models a freelanced version of the SP, including parts of its main line through the Willamette Valley and some of its branch lines. You’ll enjoy the cityscapes on Stan’s layout and the creative history of the line, which focuses on the coastal town of Coos Bay. The SP in Oregon is based from the 1940s-1960s. The feature includes an interview with Stan and lots of photographs of the layout.

Central Okanagan Railway Company in HO Scale

The Central Okanagan Railway Company models the Kettle Valley Division, including the original KVR line from Midway west and the Columbia & Western line that traveled east to Nelson. The Peachland, British Columbia club models from about 1955-1970. You’ll see some of the province’s mountains, the town of Penticton (which was the hub for both the prototype and also for the model), and many of the towns along the route. The feature includes a railfanning video of both CPR and CORC trains as well as the story of the layout and lots of photos.
